There is no doubt that Sparano is the best HC we've had since Don Shula and Nick Satan... but is he good enough to lead the Dolphins in future??
We've seen him make boneheaded mistakes on the field.. The time out in Saints game, calling for a time out on a change of possession, not being able to manage the time clock, his ignorance to talent and his reliance on his O and D coordinators.. and lets not forget how the team seems to lack motivation until the half time adjustments..
So I must ask.. should he be considered for replacement?
I know its hard to find a smart and intelligent HC these days.. but his inability to play Wake early on in the season and his love for Joey Porter has to come into the decision making process. You must also add to that the Pat White experiment (PWE).. In fact, in a humorous way, I can see Sparano sitting at his desk, slamming his fist on the desktop and saying "I drafted this kid, so come hell or high water, he is going to be a star in this league"... lol...
I knew the kid was a bust early on this season and I'm sure, with my limited knowledge of professional football, I could have realized the kid couldnt cut it in pre-season..
Now lets look at the PWE.. We needed a mobile QB that can compliment the Wildcat.. ok Pat White was a valid canidate.. but wait, Bellichek showed an interest.. So what should our front office do?? Target Pat White in the later rounds and if New England does draft him, have a contingency QB on the radar... just in case.. Instead, we drafted him for more than he was worth..
As a result of yesterdays injuries, we had the opportunity to look at Thigpen in a real game with the Dolphins helmet on.. I was impressed!!! and add to that the previous games he has played with the Chiefs, one must compare him to Henne and wonder who would be a better 1st string QB..
Has Sparano and company compared the two? Has Henne really showed more in practice than Thigpen? or is this another case of Sparano banging his desktop and trying to force his opinion on the team?
I dont know folks.. I'm just a high school football player turned electrician in the real world, but I do have all the love and passion for my Miami Dolphins and want only the best for my team.. The best QB, the best HC and the best offense and defense... even if it means taking a real hard look at all the coaches at all the colleges trying to find the next Bill Walsh..
